Lamborghini Aventador SV review – interior and tech

The lighter, faster version of the Aventador delivers a truly thrilling supercar driving experience

Evo rating
  • Dramatic styling, performance, dynamics
  • Outdated gearbox, unyielding seats

Interior and Tech

The SV’s cabin is more fighter jet cockpit than car interior, which immediately sets the tone for what is a unique driving experience. The bucket seats are very thinly padded and they lack lumbar support, which makes them uncomfortable even over short journeys. On long journeys, the seats can become rather painful. 

The seats are also set quite high, which means headroom is limited for anybody over six feet tall. That aside, the seating position is very good with lots of reach and rake adjustment to the steering column. The view forwards is very good thanks to a low scuttle and rearward visibility is actually very reasonable for a car of this type. With two big door mirrors and a reversing camera parking maneuvers are surprisingly manageable.

Similarly, despite the car’s size and value you soon feel comfortable threading it through town and down country lanes, owing to the visibility and precise steering. 

The Aventador uses an outdated Audi infotainment system. For the most part it works just fine, but there’s no option to play music from a mobile device via Bluetooth and there is no USB port. Instead, Lamborghini offers an alternative type of port for mobile phone connectivity that’s never as convenient as a USB. The carbon fibre door cards look the part, but with speakers mounted within them they reverberate heavily both to music and speech. 

There is no oddments storage space in the cabin whatsoever, nor any cupholders, although the front boot is quite generous.
